It is appropritte at this time to give biograpbtaol no tices of tho principal officers on whom rests the thlof share in tho conduct of the enterprise. GEN'KKAL THOMAS W. SHERMAN. Acting Mnjor General Thoiuas W. Sherman ? in charge of tho expeditionary corps ? was born in Rhode Island, graduatod at tbe West Point Military Academy In 1936, standing number eighteen in a cl?a of forty -six cadets ? on unusually large proportion? and was appointod.Second lieutenant in the Third thiitod States artillery in July , 1896. In March, 1837, he baoome Assistant Commissary of Sub sistence, and in tl>e same month of thefotlowing year was promoted to a first lieutenaooy. J net at tbe breaking oat of tbo troubles with Mexieo bo was promoted to a oaptaincy , his commission hearing date May *98, 1840 Me served with distinction previously in .the Florida wars, and accompanied General Taylor to Mexitp, render ing himself conspicuous for tbs aotfl and efficiency with which be performed his duty, lie vuw breveted Major for his gallant and mcrltoriots oOmVvt at the battle of Buena Vista, February 23, 18/?. Sineo tbe close of the Mexican war be has boon on (fcity In various parts of tbe country, always rendering oflloiont terviae. In August, 1867, while on duty at tbo Minnesota agency, ID tbe In dian country, he was distinguished for the prudence and firmness with which be acted in averting a war with tbe Mississippi tribes of the ftoux. On tbe formation of tbe Fifth artillery he was appointed Lieutenant Colonel of tbe regiment, a portion of which was engaged in tbe Bull run light, under tho name of Sherman's, and, subsequent |y, Ayres' battery. He was made Brigadier General May 17. 1891. SKETCH OF BRIOADIER GENERAL VIE US. Egbert L. Viele, wbo is in cbasge of tbe First brigade of tbo expeditionary oorpB, is the youngest son of tbe late Hon. John L. Viele, who was for a. nifmbor of ye.-ws Judge of tho Court of Last Resort, under the former State constitution. He was born in Saratoga apunty , Now York, June 17, 1825, and is consequently now thlrty six years of age. IMs early education at tbo Albany Aoodemywas under tbe supervision of tbo vonOrabie

T. Rotneyn Beck. At tbo age of sixtaen be was ap pointed to a cadotship by the Hon. D. Barnard, afterwards American Minister ul Berlin. Graduating at West I'oint In 1847, in the soma class with Major General MtCleHan, bo joined his regiment in Mextao Immediately on re ceiving his commission, and served under General SooM until tbo oloso of tbe war. On tbe termination of hostili ties General Taylor was ordered, with two divisions of the army to garrison the nowly acquired frontier. Captain 1 Viele's regiment was posted on the lower Rio Grande. Tho duties of the army along this extended frontier, then con stantly exposed to tbe incursions of numerous tribes of hostile Indians, wore as arduous us the activo service in | Mexico. The troops, divided k^to several parties, wero always in tho field. Captain Viele was assigned by Gene, ral Worth to the command of a mounted battalion sta tioned at the okl Mexican town of Laredo, and his reports, accompanying the President's Message of 1849, exhibit the deplorable condition of tbo frontier at that time Having resigned bis oommlssion in 1863, Captain Vielo was appointed State Engineer of New Jersey, and clmrgad with a geometrical survey of that State. In 1858 he was appointed Engineer-ln-Cbief of tbe Central Park, his plans for that Important public work having been unani mously adopted by a board or eminent men, of whom Washington Irving was President. As 'a member of the Council of the American Geographical Socioty, Captain Viole bccame warmly Interested in the new Arctic expe dition of Dr. Hayes, and , as Chairman of the*Arctlc Com mittee, submitted several reports to that body, urging tho importance of the expedition, both in a scientific and national point of view. In the fore part of tho prosont year ho was appointed Engineer-in-Chlcf of tho Central Park in Brooklyn. His well known Handbook needs no comment here. It is in tho liand of every volunteer. At tbe time tho capital was in peril Captain Viele or ganized a body of two hundred men, who were armed and equipped in three days, and sailed in a steamor chartered by private subscription, for tbo relief of the Seventh re giment. On reaching Fortress Monroe ho learned that tho Sevonth had already moved on to Washington, when ho opened the dangerous passage of the Potomac. Among military men General Viol- has also .iceu well known as the author of several mcritorio s w< rk? on military science. RKKTCH 01' UUIt; AIHEH GENERAL 8TKVKNF. Isaac Ingalls Stoveus, in chargo of the third brigade of tho '?xpodlilonary coi pa, in now about forty-five years or ago. Ho was bom in Andover, in tho Stato of M isxachu sotts? his tUllM , a plaiu farmer, boing of tho true Purl tan stock. R eeivlng hts oarly education at ono of the best academies iu Now England, his precocious ability led to his appointment, while a mero boy , to a ca U trthip at Wost Point. Ho graduated at that institution as the first scholar of his class, standing so high above all others that It Is said there were flttcon degrees between himself and the cadet next in rank, llis high rank was attained without remarkable labor, fnr ho learned almost by in tuition ? a sluglo reading of the most abstruse proposition in mathematics being sufficient to enable htm to master It. U|Hm leaving West Point young Stevens was appoint ed to the Engineer corps, and was for several years em ployed iu suiiorinteudiiig tho construction of seacoast for. tificaMBis , one of which was tho important fort near Buoksport, upon the Ponob.?cot rlvor. Upon the breaking out of tho war with Mexico, Lieut. Stevens served on tho personal staff of Gen. Scott, and was in all the battles on the plains of Mexico. His bold rooonnoissatir ?, forsonal gallantry and .profound know ledge of tho principles of war attracted tho attention of his general, who xpoke of him as "tho most promising officer of his aj{o." He w:is twice brovotod for gallantry in action, apd in ono of the last battles received a aovero gunshot wonnd In tho foot, from which ho still suffers. Upon his return to tho United States "Major" Stovers was selected by tho distinguished Professor Baeho to per" form the duties of Chief of tho Coast Survey Office at Washington, and while occupying that position performed a valuable public service by successfully combating the prejudices which prevailed in Cougress against that most important work. During this period Major Stevens also published a history, or rathor criticism, of tho Mexican war. This work , eminently philosophical, and displaying a profound comprehension of strategic principles, having been published in pamphlet form, is unfortunately out of print. Upon the accession of General Pierce to the Presidency, and the organization of the Territory of Washington, Professor Hachc and General Totten urged upon the Pro. sident tlve appointment of Stevctm to take charge of tho contemplated railroad survey from tho head waters of the Mississippi to Pnget Sound; and General Pierco, who had personally witnessed bis hijjh qunlitl s in Mexlcoi not only placed him in charge of the survey, hut ap pointed him also Governor of Washington Territory and ex Commissioner of Indian Affairs. Tho history of the survey appears In a superb quarto volume, forming the twelfth of the Pacific Railroad Ro ports. It la a remarkable fact that the whole of this ad mirable work was tlrst written out by short hand report ters,from Governor Steveus' dictation, ho being so en grossed with Congressional labors as to have no time U) prepare the work otherwise. But this was not allowed to interfere with a most thorough and searching subso" quant revision. One whole year of Governor Stevens' term of office as Governor of Washington Territory wus occupied by his negotiation with the Indian tribes botween the Missouri and Puget Sound. He made treaties with the formidable Blackfeot, tho Gros Ventres, the Pend Orellles, and nearly twenty other tribes, and established friendly relations with twenty thousand Indians? a work which is regarded at the Indian Bureau as ono of tho most important that has ever been effected in our Iudian relations. Upon returning from tho Blackfoot Council, Governor Stevens loarned that during his ahsenoe the Indians on the coast hail declared war upon tho whites. With tho utmost difficulty, but by feats of tho most daring Intrepidity, ho brought his small |>arty safely through the hostile tribes, and instantly set himself to work to prosecuto the war. Tho whole conduct of affairs dovolved upon him, and although questions liavo arisen about the policy of the war, thero have been none as to tho de cision, promptna-s and vigor displa) ed by Governor Ste vens. The Indians were quelled, and it is the settled opinion that the very existence of the Territories of Ore gon and Washington is due to the military genius and ex ecutive power of the Governor. President Pierco and Secretary Davis disapproving tho war, Rovornor Stevens was removed from the executive chair; but the people of Washington Territory, better informed, showod their ap preciation of his services by immediately electing htm delegate to Congress. Although selected as Chairman of the Breckinridge Ex ecutive Committee in the Presidential campaign of 1800, and thus intimately associated with the Southern leaders, he was never taken into their treasonable councils, and at the first declaration of secession he openly denounced them. Ills intimacy and influence with President Bu chanan now enabled him quietly to perform what was perhaps the most Important service of his life. ' He urgod upon the President the prompt dismissal of Floyd and Thompson from tho Cabi net , and pressed him to trust to the counsels of General Scott. He was, during the winter, in dally consultation wKh officers of the army In relation to the defences of the city of Washington, and*exerclsed a controlling Influ ence over them. For these acts ho deserves tho groti tudc of the country, no less than those other noble demo crats, Holt and Stanton. He was fortunately stimulated in life loyalty by his admirable wife and her sister, the daughters of one of the most eminent lawyers of Rhodo Island. At the elose of the session of Congress Governor Ste vens proceeded to Washington Territory, and while in tho remotest part of tho Territory lieard of the attack on Sumter. He instantly offerod his services to the govern ment, and left for the city of Washington, determined to fight for the Union, even in the ranks. He got command of the Seventy Dinth New York regiment ? Uio Highland ers ? and at once gained their confidoDce , respect and ad miration, soon restoring them from tho state of demorali sation nod revolt in which he found them, into one of tho inert roliabio regiments in tho service. He is now in oommand of the Third Brigade, of which the Seventy niBtti forms a part. We may expect him and the brigade to distinguish themselves. (US ETCH OF GENERAL WRIGHT. Brigadier General Horatio Gates Wright is a native of Q in ton, Connecticut, and graduated at West Point in 1841, standing number two in his cIofb. lie became Second Lieutenant of tho First United States Engineers in tho same year, and in January, 1842, was appointed aoting assist ant l'rofeseor of Engineering at the Military Academy, a position he bcld until August, 1843, when hebccamofull Assistant Professor. In February, 1848, he was promoted to a First Lioutenantoy, and in February, 1865, toa Cap taincy in the Engineers. Ho was for four years assistant to General Totton, in the Engineer Offloe at Washington, and rendered valuable service in that capacity. He was subsequently stationed at the Tortugas Island, engaged in the construction of Fort Jefferson, a duty that may be considered au an honorable exile. Our readers will re. member bow tho mereurial Floyd sent Captain M. C. Meigs to this post to bo effectually rid of him. By the increase of the engineer oorps be was promoted Major, his commission dating August 6, of tho present year. He is among Uiosc recently created Brigadier Gencruls by the President, his appointment dating from last mouth. Such are the men on whom tlie hopes of tho country dow rest, as having the conduct of an expedition of such vast magnitude, and fraught with such inestimable re sults to tho whole republic. We trust they will all provo fully up to the trust reposed in them , and that tho work which they havo on hand will redound to their own glory, and to the great and lasting Interests of the whole land. THE COA^URVIEYOfFICER. COLONEL CHAM.ES 0. BOUTELLE, or THE UNITED STATES COAST SDK VET SERVICE. A most prominent officer of tho expedition is Colonel Charles 0. Bontelle, of tho United States Coast Purvey, who has been long known as an efficient officer in that servico. How important his position is In the present expedition will be observed by tho perusal of tho follow ing facts in connection with his history as a United Statos Coast Survey officer:? In 1852 ho made tho survey of that portion of th? Southern coast extending from Capo Fear to St. Marys river, cml'racing the coast of South Carolina and Georgia, Rnd In 1853 was engaged on the New England coast. In tlieso latter operations ho was assisted by Benjamin Hugor, Jr., son of the rebel Major General Hugcr.

THE SUPPLIES AND GENERAL ARRANGEMENTS. Groat foresight has boon used In tho tilting out of tho expedition , bo as to guard iigalmst tallure from slight causes. Tlio disembarkation of tho troops Is ono of iho most necessary and Important matters to bo attended to, and for that all possible precautions seem to havo been taken. Tho ferry boats are chlolly to bo relied upon for bringing tho trooi* closo to shore, being much belter adapted for landing troops lllau lb# ordltulry *ul1' ?teamers; and hi addition to those several hundred surfboats havo been provided, command..! by expe rienced surfmcn and wreckers from tho Now Jersey coast. Gen. Sherman estimates, in one or lus orders, that tho means at his disix.sal are cabbie of landing from three to four thousand men at once. Tho best | pilots to bo found lu this city and In New Kngland, whose j seamen are familiar with every league of the Southern coast, are engaged in the service of tho government, and will prove to be Indispensable to their assistance. An Immense number of army wagons and horses, for transportation purposes, In adduiou to those be longing to .-aeh regiment, aro also on board the (loot, and wo understand that the wagoners havo been recruit ed to tho extent or two hundred from tho stage drivers of this olty, who are proverbial for their skill In managing the reins. Tho transport ship Groat Republic alone has six hundred and fifty horses on board? tho wbolo number of horses being llfteen hundred. Tho steamship l>antel Webster Carrie* a supply of water for tho expedition. Other transport* are laden with hay, forage, brick, provi si. ms of all k nls, shovels, pickaxes, barrow a and Imple ments of every inscription required Tor fortification pur poses. Wo understand that a corps of carpenters, masons, and other artUiers, with one thousand laborers, was organized in this city, and accompanies tho expedition, and it wus expected that, in addition to those, several hundred contraband negroes at Fortress Mouroo would ho sent. Wo believe, however, that that order has boon countermanded, and tluit no negroes wore taken on hoard there. H has been determined, however , that all person?, of whatever color, who may seek the shelter <>r our flag, will be employed in throwing up fortifications erecting temiH?rary barracks Tor our troop* wlwrcvor and landed. Extra camp equipage, or every description, is provided on the most liberal scale, and largo supplies or clothing and equipments, not only tor those who now fonu part of our rorccn, but Tor those who may rally to the support of the government in the regions where our troops go to restore tho country's flag.
